Indistinct chlorhexidine has been mistaken for other solutions such a s saline (injected into epidural space) and IV contrast (cerebral angiograms etc) with devastating consequences.
We are trying to ban indistinct pourable chlorhexidine. Very interested in your thoughts and help.
Please see this link for more details:

I would like your advice and opinions relating to the administration of a drug at the end of a lengthy failed resuscitation attempt. We can approach this hypothetically.
A paediatric patient had been assessed to have suffered a cardiac arrest, and a resuscitation attempt had been carried out for more than half an hour. The patient was assessed to have been flatlined and non-shockable throughout the resuscitation attempt. A decision to cease the resuscitation attempt was then made. 4.2mls of intravenous Fentanyl (an intubation dose) was administered after ceasing resuscitation.

What would the possible rationale behind administering the drug to this patient be?

I would try to improve the condition of this patient preoperatively-infusions,correction of anaemia,adequate intravascular volume,  Echo-find out ejection fraction,pulmonary hypertension,valve function. In case of severe heart depression,CT brain -acute ischaemia,I would refuse the case. In case I would anesthetize this patient, I would discuss risk of this procedure with his family- highrisk patient, very old, complications including death. I would prefer epidural with placing catheter-unnecessary adequate iv volume.

Should be wise to extubate when laringeal reflex is back

I would like to ask about your practice of extubation following total gastrectomy. During this procedure of course gets some GIT content up to mouth. Do you feel ,frequent missed microaspirations of this content in yet intubated patient occur?How do you prevent aspiration?
How do you proceed,if a distal part of oesophagus is also resected and in the end of surgery you change from double-lumen endotracheal tube to single lumen one?
Do you experience more respirátory complications following this procedure?
Thanks very much for your answers  Frank

 ??? I will use it all the times instead of isoflorane. I have two vaporizers for halotan , but in Europe no supplier has halotan anymore. So some two years or more I gladly use iv sufentanyl because with isofluran it never goes smoothly as it was with halotane
